Livermore Cinemas installs largest theater solar-power system in thecountry.Anyone who has visited Livermore in the middle of summer knows howwicked the sun's rays can be.Bring 'em on, said the owner of Livermore Cinemas, now the largest of thecountry's handful of solar-powered movie theaters.Monday, local business and city leaders gathered at the cineplex on FirstStreet for a presentation on its state-of-the-art solar-power system, which has been up and running since February.Organizers said the event was timed around the opening of the Disney naturemovie "Earth," which begins playing nationwide today — Earth Day.The 132-kilowatt system covers the bulk of the theater's 20,000-square-footroof, making it not only the largest known solar-power system to be installedat a movie theater, but one of the largest systems of solar "modules"anywhere in the country, said Ted Walsh, director of commercialdevelopment for Novato-based SPG Solar.Unlike traditional solar panels, the modules — cylindrical tubes about thelength and width of shower curtain rods — can be lined up side-by-side on aflat roof. They do not need to be fastened down to keep them from blowingaway.The modules, produced by the international company Solyndra, are a newer form of technology that can be used as an alternative to solar panels inwindy regions, such as Livermore, where the cost to secure panels to a building might otherwise be cost-prohibitive, Walsh said.
 
More than 800 modules, the equivalent of 21 miles of solar cells, wereinstalled on the Livermore Cinemas roof. The system offsets about 35 percent of the electricity needs at the theater, which is part of Cinema West,a group of 12 Northern California theaters.Cinema West owner Dave Corkill said he expects to receive federal taxcredits and state rebates. He figures the system will pay for itself in aboutseven years.It is a financial win in the long run, he said, but that's not the only reason hedecided to go solar."I just think it's the responsible thing to do in this world as a business owner.I think you have to be eco-conscious," he said.According to Environmental Protection Agency estimates, the Livermoresystem will prevent the emission of more than 3,400 metric tons of greenhouse gases over the next 25 years.Download Solar Panel Do-it-yourself GuideGoogle searches: Download USA Solar Panel Construction Guide, Do-it-yourself Guide.
